in the economy. the fed has been fighting that trying to keep rates down to ensure the economy is really getting going, not just one time only, but steady in creating a lot of jobs. now if today's data is a sign that things are on track in this country, i don't know what it is. i just don't know what is good data. after i saw this data. so you have to figure the fed stops fighting the tide unless rates rise and this will present more competition for stocks and it can reverse the terrific data we got today and that's what janet yellen has to be worried about. the successor to bernanke. maybe the data is aberrant. we haven't seen a surge in consumer spending. we really haven't seen a strong employment growth, and while we keep talking about a budget compromise today, forget it, it's not a surety. it may not do anything other than resolve the ridiculous sequester that's so twisted government spending. frankly, i tried to dispense with this as quick as i can. why? anyone can trace it. so let me tell you what you don't know. you have heard about this tapering game for so long. i know you don't care t

fuego, with demand outstripping supply. and if the economy keeps improving, things will get even better for the hotel operators. hilton is, in fact, the world's largest hotel chain. it's under a number of brands, not just hilton. waldorf astoria, conrad, doubletree, embassy suites, hampton, homewood suites. now it's expected to price next thursday at $18 to $20 a share. i want to give you a head start to focus on this one. a little over a week, stock's trading under the symbol hlt. at the midpoint of that range, this would be a $19.3 billion company and the stock would be fairly expensive by most metrics. however, i still think it makes sense for you to try to get in on the hilton deal. let me tell you why. i think it's likely the stock will pop on the first day of trading, as has been the pattern for the vast majority of ipos this year. some of that is because hilton is private equity backed ipo by blackstone. blackstone took the chain private in 2007 and now they're spinning it off again as a private company. last month we saw another hotel play from blackstone come public. i'm talkin

if good news about the economy is bad news for stocks or is the opposite the case, as the economy improves should we like stocks more? it's a first-class quandary that we have to dive into headlong on "mad money" if we're going to figure out the market's move. it's distracted and a parlor game and we find you the best stocks and the best opportunities. the only focus on the fed's next move the last three years, you missed some of the single best moments to invest in our lifetimes. i regard that as terrible. i regard it as shameful because this fed-centric world presumes that the market is one big stock that is sent higher or lower by ben bernanke and janet yellin and it's the market as a marionette. my favorite credo is the opposite. the stocks represent companies and the companies march to many different drum e not just the fed drummer. some companies do better than higher interest rates and like the minerals and oils and most important, many companies do better because their managements are smart or incentive to create value. if you spend all of your time waiting for the fed to tell you

consolidation, four player downs there control 96% of the market that means competition. the mexican economy is coming on strong. while cheap educated labor and nafta are bringing in a host of german and japanese manufacturers. and they fly to many of the towns where the new plants are being built. management assures me there are going to be many more smaller airports covered soon. they are so cheap they can compete with the bus lines, which is the way most people get around in mexico. this stock is a buy. last but not least, let me draw your attention to a new one. navigator holdings. nvgs. you often see wilbur ross on squawk. this transports liquefied petroleum gases like propane and butane, along with petrochemical gases like ethylene and propylene. navigator just came public two weeks ago. since then the stock has rallied another 5%. production in these quitified petroleum gases is rising rapidly in the united states, as you know, because we talk about it all the time and there is a big demand in east asia and europe. right now 23 handy-sized ships, with another eight ships on order ther

is good news moments is the history leading up to when the economy flips into high gear and good news becomes actual good news. every time we've ever been in this situation before, it's been an explosive time for the market. and you had to invest during the bad news is good news phase in order to reap the biggest gains. in other words, you have to be early and you have to anticipate. if you wait for the market to smell good as the tweeter i mentioned once, then you'll likely miss a great deal of the move. hey, that's how retail comes out. too late. now here's where a lot of judgment gets clouded. there are plenty of people who believe that the federal reserve is life support for the stock market. and when you take away that life support, what happens? the market dies. these people simply do not know the history of the market as encompassed by my admonitions by don't fight the fed. thanks to the polarizing world, now affects even the process of trying to make money in stocks. i think it's a totally false linkage. those who avoided this rally because they believe that it is somehow poli
